Red kites, Redstarts and Pied flies.

Took our dog for a walk up in the woods near Skaigh again and found 3 pairs of pied flies. While watching one pair, a beautiful Red Kite with almost no moult drifted over and was then joined by another! Started to walk home and we then noticed a lovely male Redstart in a willow tree, which was then joined by a female.                  Also many blackcaps, willow warblers, ravens, tits and chiffchaffs.
